Party time with John Lee Hooker Jr!

John Lee Hooker Jr. rolls into the Torch Club tonight for a CD release party! Son of a blues legend, his journey through life mirrors what we’ve heard about many other blues musicians. For the past ten years, he has been on the road back from the deepest of depths. His music today is a celebration, with elements of R & B, jazz and down home blues.

Terry Hanck is back!

Looking for some great sax on a Friday night? The Torch Club is the place to find it as the Terry Hanck Band takes the stage. Terry has been nominated for two Blues Music Awards this year, for Best Horn and Best Song! Come and get some!

Harley White Jr, featuring Aaron King

Another hot Thursday night as house favorites Harley White Jr, Aaron King and the band bring their brand of bluesy jazz and jazzy blues to Sacramento’s uncontested home of bluesy jazz and jazzy blues!

Alkali Flats tonight.

Alkali Flats have brought their brand of music to venues around the country and overseas. Their mix of country, honky tonk, americana, hillbilly, and leveebilly should prove quite refreshing. Come on out to the Torch tonight and get energized to make it through the rest of your week.


RIP Ronnie Montrose

Saddened to hear about the passing of another talented local musician. Ronnie Montrose had many friends among the Torch Club regulars.


Come on out to the Torch Club for an early, no cover Happy Hour (4-7) with Aaron King and Friends and more great Beer Week specials, then stay for The League to wrap up another great Torch Club weekend!

Afrofunk Experience tonight!

Wow, it’s another one of those Torch Club nights when you can’t figure out how they fit ALL that talent on one little stage. The Afrofunk Experience brings it here from Oakland, with their mix of ORIGINAL BAY AREA FUNK, AFROBEAT, REGGAE, AND MORE. They’ve got what it takes to support all that AND the more.

Midtown Creepers!

Yes, I know a lot of you would feel justified in claiming the name, but the Midtown Creepers beat you to it. They’ve been bringing their blues to the Torch Club for years. Get your weekend up to speed with them tonight! In fact, come in for happy hour for more Beer Week specials! House favorites Pailer and Fratis provide the sounds from 5-7.

Oh, YESSS! Another Beer Week event.

Seriously, what more do you need to know? Well, okay, here’s a little more. Tonight the Contino Band from Las Vegas graces the Torch Club stage. According to their Reverbnation page, the group has crafted a lively and distinctive mixture of blues, Americana, rockabilly, and zydeco. Sounds great to me! You?

Howell Devine tonight! Plus the continuation of Beer Week!

Check this out, it’s a return engagement for the Howell Devine trio tonight. Do you enjoy down home blues? How about some raw slide guitar and a hot rhythm section playing the sounds of the old south? Throw in a little harp and you’ve got something that will really get you going. Howell Devine is not just your run-of-the-mill bar band. If you missed them last time, don’t you do that again! Get yourself primed during happy hour with more of the Torch Club special, Lagunitas IPA for $3.50 per pint  from 5:30-7:30, then hang for some great music.
